    unfortunately i tink its not.

    got it second hand with unfilled warrenty but without reciept.
    the seller said he will get it for me...but it will take time... so i am prepared for the worse...that it has no warrenty..

    scratches,dusts, dirts on viewfinder,mirror or even lens won't affect your picture.

    Default prism

    I think it might be due to the prism which is somewhere near to the internal Flash system. It definetly wont affect the picture but might irritate you....check out with Canon Service centre...might cost abit to change the prism...

    I think warranty unfilled or not is useless. Service centres these days want to see the receipt too although some are more chin chai.
